and president obama then picks john kerry instead, guess what happens in the united states senate? massachusetts suddenly has an open u.s. senate seat as well as a certain republican senator from that state who is basically just sitting around doing nothing since he just lost his re-election effort. i know this sounds crazy. i'm fully aware of that fact. that's kind of part of the point. honestly, it is getting harder and harder to find a rational explanation forle all of this republican hand ringing. it has been been going on. there are legitimate questions to ask about what happened during that attack on our consulate in libya. those questions deserve answers. they are being investigated. there also may be legitimate questions to ask about susan rice as a potential secretary of state. that's not what's going on. there is this add dimension to what's going on right now that is really strange. >> i just believe that she has actually disqualified herself to be secretary of state. if the president wants an easy confirmation hearing and an easy confirmation process, what he would do is nominate joh

that anything is over and done, but the president is comfortable. the united states senate, a pivot or blocking position for the past couple of years. any particular race there that you think is interesting that has evolved that is demonstrative with what in our politics over the last couple of months? >> i think there are several. the north dakota race there is a good chance. i think missouri, claire mccaskill has a good chance to hold her seat. the most important race that i would point to is the indiana race which is richard murdoch the tee party republican who beat dick lugar in a primary versus joe donnelly the republican. or the democrat, excuse me. donnelly, according to a poll that came out today, has an 11-point lead. let me explain take a second to explain why i think this is the most important race. we have those fiscal cliff negotiations coming up after the election and before the beginning of the year. if obama wins re-election, obama is going to be negotiating with probably a republican house and with probably a democratic-controlled senate but a senate where there will be more th

. maybe that is an indication. the reason i am running for the united states senate is because i spent 25 years in the federal government. those agencies comprise about 40% of our discretionary budget. they are not doing that and they should be looking at the constituents. thank you very much. >> moderator: senator cynthia dill? dill: i am running because i want to make a difference. i believe america needs a new generation of leadership. what is wrong with the congress is extreme politics and in this particular race, by two major opponents represent the status quo. on one hand we have charlie summers and on the other hand we have angus king. today's "new york times" characterizes this race as karl rove versus michael bloomberg. what i am offering the people of the state of maine is to independence, someone who is not local and out-of-state money but only beholden to you and your family. so i look forward to tonight's discussion. we do need a new generation of leadership and i'm pleased to be in the race and i hope to have your support. >> moderator: thank you andrew ian dodge? dodge: tho

to believe this is the third occasion on which we are welcoming united states senator mike lee. seems like yesterday, senator, when you came to us just after your election in 2010 presenting your vision of our system of limited constitutional government. i remember you describing with a sense of hope and enthusiasm the desire you saw among the people along your campaign trail for a return to our founding principles. i suspect that those principles to 9 resonate at quite the same pitch in all ways of the senate as they did among the utah people on the campaign trail but it is apparent from his work and effort, senator lee is irrepressible. in the midst of consideration of legislation as well as participation in oversight at the confirmation process, senator lee has harkened back to basic constitutional principles and restrict for structural constitution more tonight remember any other senator doing. is this having an impact? the senate by design is a place where things move very slowly. some more time will be needed to determine whether senator lee is helping to pave the way for a lasting c
